Celebrity Hair - How to Get It
Everyone loves celebrity hair. It seems like most famous people
never have a bad hair day. Okay, aside from Donald Trump. What's
their secret? Is it in their genes, or do they have secret
weapons against bad hair days?
While some people may genuinely have smooth, lustrous hair
naturally, the majority of people you see with envy-inducing
hair are the product of excellent styling and hair products and
tools, mixed with a good stylist and a great haircut. Oh yeah,
and sprinkle in some dietary supplements and a good diet rich in
hair-friendly nutrients. This equation results in fabulous,
silky, vibrant hair that will be the envy of many.
So, what are the secrets to the healthy and beautiful locks of
celebrities? As previously mentioned, the selection of hair
products and hair styling tools is crucial, no matter what
you've heard. Not only that, but tendency to use too little
product in an effort toward conservation is a common mistake. If
you are using a hair creme or gel designed to smooth the hair or
make curls less frizzy and more uniform, do not skimp. Skimping
on the products will reduce their effectiveness.
Another good tip used by hairstylists and recommended by several
top beauticians is to periodically use a vinegar rinse on your
hair. The acid in the vinegar helps to rinse away residue on the
hair left by dirt and styling products, and leaves the hair
shiny and smooth due to the acid content. It may not smell too
pleasant, but it really works to clean the hair and remove the
residue that causes dullness.
Want Straight, Shiny and Smooth Hair?
If you're looking to get straight, manageable and shiny hair,
there are some excellent styling tools that were previously only
used by high profile celebrity stylists at a pretty penny that
are now available for sale online and in salons. These hair
straightening irons are made of material that does not damage
the hair with hight heat, but actually helps seal the cuticle
and make the hair appear shinier and healthier, while keeping it
smooth for hours.
The hair dryer you use is also very important if you're looking
for a straight and smooth style. Be sure to pick one that says
it uses Ionic technology, and also make sure the dryer has at
least 1875 watts of power. Any less than that, and you will find
that you are drying your hair longer, and it will look drier and
more brittle because of the longer use.
As far as shampoos and conditioners go, I would not recommend
choosing a shampoo that boasts "clarifying" or "formulated for
oily hair". These types of formulas usually produce a lot of
lather and really feel like they're cleaning your head and hair,
but really they strip your hair of the natural oils they need to
stay healthy and shiny and will make your hair more brittle.
Instead, opt for a shampoo that is formulated for normal to dry
hair. Then, even if you have oily hair or an oily scalp, at
least you are still getting the cleansing you need without the
stripping and dryness.
The same theory should be followed for your conditioner.
Conditioners that have moisturizing ingredients and are
advertised as adding shine and manageability are your best
options. These formulas are usually targeted to seal the
individual strands of hair and protect them from humidity, frizz
and split ends.
When preparing your hair for a blowing dry after cleansing and
conditioning, be sure to use a wide tooth comb rather than a
brush when it is wet. This avoids a lot of breakage. Also, when
blowing out the hair, use a natural brush that is as large
around as you can find. The larger the brush used in the
blowout, the straighter and shinier your hair will be.
A good recommendation followed by some of today's most famous
women at the advice of their stylists is to sleep on a satin
pillowcase. Doing this assures that you are not causing friction
and split ends at night. Not only that, you will wake up with
hair that is almost exactly as you left it at night, since the
satin material allows your hair to glide smoothly without damage
or drastic displacement as you move your head around in your
Another recommendation is to take a good dietary supplement,
more specifically one geared toward nail and hair growth and
health. These hair supplements can really give you a boost in
the internal nutrients such as biotin and amino acids that your
hair needs to stay glossy and lustrous.
Follow these guidelines, and I can assure you, it will give you
the power to achieve the hair you've always wanted. And, of
course, it doesn't hurt to have "good hair genes".
